This isn't your typical weekend box office, of course, but there were a couple of new releases. The critically-acclaimed whodunit 'Knives Out' started off the Thanksgiving weekend box office with $6.2 million on Thursday in the U.S./Canada. It's expected to bring in up to $45 million this five-day weekend (on a $40 million budget).

Universal's crime drama 'Queen & Slim' brought in $2.4 million on Thanksgiving Day, and is expected to make around $15 million for the five-day weekend (on a $17-20 million budget).

Regardless of new releases, 'Frozen 2' will destroy the competition. It made $14.7 million on Thanksgiving day, and could make up to an insane and record-breaking $135 million over the holiday weekend.

Spoilers under cuts, etc.
